The fall, with the autumn colors of the leaves changing, make cruising south some of the most beautiful experiences of the year for yacht crew. As the Fall and Winter season arrives, our yachts are making their plans for their moves back to the southern climates where islands are plentiful, and the cruising offers new experiences while they enjoy the warmth of getting away from winter’s chill.

Extra crewmembers are usually hired during the holiday season, which presents a wonderful opportunity to see if a long-term employment relationship would work.

Opportunities are plentiful if you are thinking of heading in a new direction or improving your crew job situation. Owners are reaping the rewards of some of the best talent in the industry looking for new challenges. The winter season on the Eastern seaboard brings cruising in the Bahamas and the Caribbean, usually with some yard periods in South Florida to make ready for the upcoming Charter season. In the Pacific they move from Alaska and California into Baja and Mexico.

Crewfinders has supplied yacht crew to some of the best yachts on the water and is currently searching for a number of applicants with specialized talents. Let us know if you think you have exceptional skills to offer. We will be happy to hear from you.

Our placements are still being done remotely by phone and e-mail with good success. In person meetings will resume at a later date.

Special Announcement

We decided to sell our Crewfinders office building at 404 SE 17 Street.
The population density was getting to be a bit more than a person used to being on the water was comfortable dealing with and a family who loved the building and location asked to purchase it for a worthwhile amount.
Crewfinders staff have been working remotely since covid, starting in March of 2020. The business has been quite successful during this time, even with limited face to face meetings with our crew members.
Yacht crew tend to always be moving and in other locations when we interact with them even under normal circumstances. Most of our communications even with office space were by phone or email. We are considering new office space in the West Palm Beach or Stuart area, but no final decisions have been made.
Please Call or Email Us as you have been doing and we are happy to help in any way we can with your search for your next yachting position. We apologize for any inconvenience and will continue to make sure Owners, Captains and Crew staffing needs are met. Thank you for continuing to work with Crewfinders.
